Hi,

I have an object with about 90000 polys. It has many small shapes supported by long tubes.
I need to select just the long tubes.
I thought that I could do this by defining a threshold for polygon length.
Is there a way to get the length of a polygon, then select it if it's larger than a specified number?

Regards,
Nir.

You would have to calculate that length for each and every tube. Wouldn't it be easier to give them all a 'Part' name?

But I need to select them first. Hence my question :)

All I need is a function that traverses all polygons and selects each one that's longer than x. Anyone?

Thanx in advance,
Nir.
